Pain & throbbing in neck !!!


I have an awful pain/pressure feeling at the back of my head, down my neck, into my shoulders & down my spine for 2yrs on and off. At the same time I get a throbbing sensation at the back of my head where it meets the neck. When this happens my right eye goes blurred, I can’t focus. My speech goes slurred & I am unable to find the right words as well as my balance is off, like i’m drunk. I find if I carry anything on my arms the pain is worse.

I have had an MRI, the reports say low lying tonsils(brain) over crowding & a straightened neck.

I also get tingling, numbness & burning sensation on my skin. I feel very down at the moment as I have no clue as to what’s going on & feel useless.

Can anyone help??? I am at a loss as to what’s going on. Thank

Well I found out what is was after going for a ct venogram. I have stenosis of the cerebral venous sinuses. Next step is an angiography & stent.
